Hull City management are fuming with the behaviour of Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas during their bitter FA Cup defeat at the Emirates. Outwith the spitting controversy, Brown was still fuming about what he considers to be the disrespect shown to his club by Fabregas.

And the Daily Mail says the Spaniard is thought to have repeatedly told Hull City's players and their coaching staff to "f*** off back up north you w*****s".

Hull City's players then had to be restrained from attacking the Arsenal midfielder and his teammate Emmanuel Adebayor in the tunnel.
